For our last day of the 12 Days series, I want to talk about how to thrive your succulent garden in 2021.

What are the tools you need for your succulent garden? Today I want to talk about basic succulent essential tools for growing them in the garden.

Tools for growing succulents in the ground are similar to containers planter.

Here are the best tools to help you grow your succulent and make the garden beautiful.

Water Can

Water can is a basic tool for every gardener. What type of water can you use in your garden?There are different types of water can, but which one suits you?

Early on when I started to grow succulents, I bought a squeeze bottle(500 ml), but it’s too small when my succulent collection increases.

I don’t know about you, but if I can use something to make my life easier or save me time, I’ll change it. So I changed my squeeze bottle to a medium-size water can.

Choose the water can that can make your life easy and save time.

For the succulent garden, you at least need the water can that can fill in with about 3-4 liters of water.

The best water can for growing succulent is the water can have long and narrow gooseneck style spout. With this design, it’s easy to take control of your water flow smoothly and precisely.

The best way for watering succulents is watered at the base under the leaves. Succulent leaves can’t absorb water. When the water stays in the middle for too long, the leaves in the middle will rot.

Garden Kit

This has been my favorite tool to help me repotting, trimming, and pruning my succulents.

A Garden kit is a set of tools that will help you when planting. I’ve talked about garden kit before and can’t shut up about it.

B) Hand Trowel

With a hand trowel, I can transplanting and potting my succulents easily.


C) Pruner

This tool is a useful hand tool around the garden. Most of the time, I used it for trimming and shaping the plant.


D) Dust blower and cleaning brush.

After repotting, I’ll clean up the succulent leaves with a dust blower and cleaning brush.

Moisture Meter/Gardening Soil Meter

Are you having a tough time trying to figure out when to water your succulent? Sometimes we forget to water them or maybe water too frequently.

Well, moisture meters will help you figure out when is the right time to water your succulent.

You can use this meter for:

  • Measure the percentage of water in the soil.
  • Finding a light degree. (Not all the moisture meters have this function.)
  • Test the soil temperature and the average fertility rate.

Shade Cloth

Shade cloth is needed in your garden to help succulents keep away from sunburn.

“Succulent love sunlight “was the advice from the nursery when I first started my succulent garden. But, my succulents were killed because of the heat from the afternoon sunlight. That’s why I bought the shade cloth to protect my succulents from sunburn.

You can use shade cover during summer to protect your succulent from harshness.

You might need a commercial frost cloth made of non-woven fabric when the frost is predicted for a series of nights.

There You Go!
